One month after president Donald Trump assured American voters that he would allow the Syrian people to decide the fate of their president Assad, he launched cruise missile strikes on a Syrian airfield as a result of an unattributed "Sarin gas" chemical attack.

    Now a video has emerged of another planned false flag chemical attack against civilians in Syria that was reportedly filmed recently by al-Jazeera stringers in the country, Sputnik News reported. This filming was said to have been ordered from a European country.

    “Around 30 fire engines and ambulances, as well as 70 local residents with children transported from a refugee camp were used to film the Al Jazeera clip across three locations in Idlib province, including Jisr Shughur” the news site reported.

    Al-Jazeera television channel stringers recently filmed the “staged, fake scene of an alleged chemical attack against civilians by the Syrian Army,” the source told Sputnik.

    “A multiple simultaneous uploading of filmed fake footage with ‘screaming’ social media comments was due to take place in the next few days [by Sunday] at the separate command of a mastermind and sponsor of the film in one of the European countries.”

    Al Jazeera denied the report, adding that “[i]t is known that Sputnik is always used as a propaganda tool to defend the Syrian regime”.

    In December 2016, Egyptian police detained a crew faking “wounded children” photos, which they were planning to use on social media as “evidence” of destruction and injured people in Syria’s Aleppo.

    Meanwhile the delegation head at Astana peace talks and Special Presidential Representative for Syria said that Russia has irrefutable evidence indicating that the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun was a provocation.

    “You understand perfectly well that Russia has all the irrefutable evidence that this is a pure provocation on the part of individuals and structures that are not interested in achieving peace on the Syrian soil, but unfortunately all our explanations, arguments, attempts to prove stumble into complete misunderstanding of the West,” Alexander Lavrentyev told reporters.

    The current establishment of de-escalation zones in Syria needs no UN Security Council authorisation but the guarantor states will notify it as they are confident in the UN support, Alexander Lavrentyev added.

    Syria’s chief diplomatic envoy Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari has conveyed Syria’s approval of the move as Russia and Iran along with Turkey will be the enforcers of the safe-zones.

    The US and Turkey have both been demanding the establishment of safe-zones which in effect are no-fly zones, pushing for such US controlled no-fly zones that would have attempted to ground Syrian and Russian jets, but the new memorandum agreed upon in Astana shifts the trajectory in favour of Syria, Russia and Iran.

    The militant factions which were part of the peace talks angrily stormed out of the session where the memorandum was signed by representatives of Russia, Iran and Turkey.

    If the so-called Syrian National Coalition(SNC) do not abide by the protocols of the soon to be established safe zones, they will be unmasked as insurgents rather than “moderate opposition forces” seeking peace.

    The Russian proposal seeks to “put an immediate end to the violence” gripping Syria and “provide the conditions for the safe, voluntary return of refugees”, AFP reported.

    The delegation representing the Syrian armed opposition, possibly sensing their conundrum, returned to peace talks being held in Kazakhstan on Thursday only a day after it said it had suspended its participation, the RIA news agency reported.
